Certain Routes To Stadium AffectedSupporters are asked to note that essential maintenance work is now underway on the Princess Street Bridge, affecting the flow of traffic around Bloomfield Road.
The work, which is expected to be completed in March next year, has resulted in Seasiders’ Way being closed to all traffic between the junction at Bloomfield Road and Central car park.
Princess Street will also be closed between Middle Street and Caroline Street.
The maintenance work will see 10 Blackpool bridges repaired over the next four years at a total cost of £11.365m. The money is made up by contributions from Blackpool Council, the Department for Transport’s Challenge Fund and the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership’s Growth Fund.
The majority of these bridges are in a desperate need of repair due mainly to the corrosive action of air-borne salts and chlorides that come with being near the seaside. Some bridges, including Princess Street, would have to close within the next two years if this work wasn’t carried out.
